How do you get a glittering effect when navigating inside a 3D-view as shown here SketchFab Post ? As you can see, for some reason the particles around her appear when in motion & almost disappear when stopped. I am just looking for the basics, don't need a highly detailed description.

  • $\begingroup$ There are particles that get brighter during motion and all but disappear when the 3D-view is at rest. Giving it a Japanime magic effect. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Those particles only appear brigther at movement, because the render has not anti aliased them at first. $\endgroup$

It's very easy,

  • Go to the compositor
  • Make sure you check use nodes
  • Add a glare node in between "render layers" and "composite"
  • Set it to "fog glow" and try various settings till you get desired effect(s)
  • "Threshold" controls pretty much how much glow there is
  • The lower it is the more glow
  • "Size" controls how blurry is the glow
  • I normally use only those two settings

Voila !!! Magic lights.
